Hi all

For those of you looking for some fun next winter:
(scholarships available, see below)


New MSc in Creative Systems, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK

"The idea becomes the machine that makes the art" Sol LeWitt

The role of the computer in creative work is evolving rapidly. Once
just a substitute for traditional tools (e.g., the software
paintbox), the computer is now seen more as a programmable ‘sounding
board’, an active assistant capable of making its own contribution to
the creative process. Artists, musicians and theorists are just
beginning to explore the exciting possibilities of this new approach.

Research in creative systems combines ideas from theories of
creativity as well as leading-edge techniques in artificial
intelligence (AI), artificial life (ALife), human-centred computing
and multimedia systems. The University of Sussex is a world-leading
centre for interdisciplinary work in all of these areas. The new MSc
in Creative Systems provides the opportunity to get up to speed in
the skills and knowledge relevant for the research and development of
creative systems.

We are looking for numerate, creative applicants with a good first
degree: science, engineering, arts and humanities graduates are
welcome to apply. Applicants with industrial experience will also be
favourably considered. Overseas applicants are expected to have
achieved a comparable standard in qualifications obtained in their
own country.

This one-year programme of tuition and study will commence in October
2007. Applicants will be automatically considered for EPSRC
studentships which cover fees and living expenses.
